From Carol Bundy
To all of you who seem to enjoy reading and commenting about my family, the Cliven Bundy family, whether you think of us as positive or negative, I would like to say a few things.
My family took a constitutional stand last April, a stand against a federal government that is out of control. We stood in the face of at least 200-armed men, hired by the federal government to destroy our way of life and our liberty.
What kind of government will allow armed men hired by the BLM, to point their guns at a family that is defending their established water and other rights?
And then continue to point their guns at thousand of other Americans that came and stood with us?
OUR RIGHTS ARE DOCUMENTED IN NEVADA RECORDS AND SHOULD BE PROTECTED BY THE STATE OF NEVADA AGAINST FEDERAL OVERREACH AND FORCE. When should a state allow the federal government to “manage” their lands? The BLM tried to “manage” my family out of business, just like they did all my neighbors.
We are a normal family with an ordinary life and normal problems, we have been thrust into the limelight that makes our ordinary life and problems hit the headlines of the news and social media almost daily. My family does so much good and we are always ready to help anyone in need.
We live modestly and enjoy being together as a family. I am sad that media and the press seem to relish in all the problems and seem to want to drag my family down and make us look like a bunch of unintelligent radicals that do not listen to anyone or obey any laws. That is just not so.
My family loves this country.
My family loves God.
We long for peace and tranquility.
And understand the need for law.
We are not that type of people the media would like the world to believe.
Momma Carol Bundy
